I am running Android 6.0 with CM13. I installed a theme from the play store which changed my icons. Now even after uninstalling that theme and selecting my default android theme I don't get back my original icons. Is there a way to make android reload its icons to revert to the original icons.
Disabling the affected app in settings and then enabling them brought back the original icon:
- Go to Settings › Apps
- Select the "All" tab
- Scroll to the app showing up with the wrong icon on your homescreen/drawer
- Tap its name to open the app-info
- Tap the "Disable" button, which then changes to "Enable"
- Tap "Enable" again
Done. Disabling the app cleared its icon from the launcher (cache?), enabling forced it to load the original one. What I did not try but maybe would solve the issue as well is clearing the cache from the launcher, then restart it (or reboot the device).
